Memcached is a famous memory caching platform, which can accelerate the speed and the performance of your websites greatly if they use an API or a database. This is accomplished by caching the calls to the database/API and the replies that are delivered, so if a visitor conducts a search for a particular product on your Internet site, for instance, the database will not have to be accessed to display the results and the whole task will be executed considerably faster. This goes for all kinds of database-powered apps and not only for e-commerce portals, since anytime a web page is visited, the application connects to its database to get the content that should be shown. With Memcached, not only will your website open significantly faster, but it will also produce much less load. If any content in the database is modified, the cached responses will also be updated, so the users will not see any outdated info.

Memcached in Cloud Hosting

The Memcached object caching system is available as an optional upgrade with each Linux cloud package that we are offering and you can begin using it the moment you add it, since the extension that it requires in order to run properly is already available on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. You can order the upgrade via the Hepsia Control Panel, which is available with every plan and a new Control Panel section where you can manage Memcached will appear. The upgrade is divided into two parts – the number of instances and the memory, so as to offer you more flexibility. The first one refers to the number of the websites which can use the Memcached caching system, while the second one, which comes in increments of 16 MB, defines the total size of the content that can be cached by the system. A popular website with a large-sized database may require more memory in order to take an even bigger advantage of Memcached, so if you need to upgrade this service, you will be able to do it at any time with a couple of clicks of the mouse.
